Editor’s Note: This position is currently on hold.

Here at The Penny Hoarder, we’re not only looking for full-time writers and remote freelancers to join our growing team — we’re also always looking to share good job opportunities, including other writing jobs.

Right now, Idealist is looking for freelancers to earn money from the comfort of their homes writing about social-impact and career development topics for its Idealist Careers publication.

If you’re not familiar with Idealist, it’s a site that connects people with information about jobs, internships and volunteer opportunities in the nonprofit sector or with other organizations that help society-at-large.

According to this job listing, writers will be paid $50 a post and are expected to write at least two posts a month, either from ideas they’ve pitched or topics assigned by an editor.

Idealist is looking for people who have experience writing for an online publication. They want fact-checking grammar whizzes who are detailed-oriented and yet have an eye for brevity.

It’d be a plus if you understand SEO fundamentals, have worked in the social-impact space before or have previous experience conducting interviews for articles.

To score this gig, you’ll need to submit a resume, cover letter and 400- to 600-word writing sample on one of two previously determined topics.
